Long day with big packs and ugly conditions. Had a mini melt down, but held it together... Marmots up there are vicious...

Trailboss88via Rock of Ages & Peak 13,540  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2012


Started at the Rock of Ages TH at 6:50am and entered the first basin. Semi-confusing trailsign mislead me to head up the basin with Silver Pick Mine. I then climbed up the end of the basin to the ridge, and followed it over Peak 13,540 (summit log tube at top) to the Rock of Ages saddle. Climbed peak via Southwest Ridge route. Was off the peak by noon, in time for intense T-storms at 13:00. Back to the TH by 2:30 after getting pelted by pea-marble sized hail. Another use for the climbing helmet!

DigglerGreat peak!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2012


with Faith, via new Rock of Ages trail (#429). New trail (props out to the forest service!) made it possible to take a trail to circumnavigate cockroach Nichols' private property. Well-marked trail to Rock of Ages col. Left TH @ 13.15 following long & late previous day (back @ TH/camp 23.31 after LONG day ascending/descending Lizard Head). Weather cooperated, though, & trail very easy to follow (easy route-finding from Rock of Ages col as well). Great day! Glad for your company, F.

Matt LemkeNice summit scramble  Sucess!

The first peak I took Josh on for our Colorado trip. He did great. The summit scramble was fun and the views of the El Diente/Wilson Traverse was great.

Josh Lewis

Awwww... This was the hardest peak of the trip. Capitol Peak was much much easier by comparison... but then again I was not used to the altitude. I got around 500 feet from the summit which Matt Lemke suggested I stop. After he continued I passed out and woke up feeling very sick feeling. One of the worst summit attempts I've had in a long time. But the mountain itself was good quality.

The first peak of ten that week. Kinda dirty from the ROA saddle to the top. There's a nice section of easy third near the top.

Left Navajo Lake at 6am and got to the summit and 9:15am. Great summit was some of the most incredible views. We did this for a warm up for the Mt Wilson-El Diente Traverse. The day we summited was supposed to have awful weather (50% chance of thunderstomrs/rain. We had a little bit of rain on the summit, but nothing threatening hit us tell we started rolling down the hill. The Rock of Ages Mine is awesome..great place for rock hounding!

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


8/26/06 - Standard route from camp at Navajo Lake. Bad (electric) weather, shouldn't have climbed. Hid out in the little cabin below the Rock of Ages saddle to wait out storms on the way up and down!

1/14/12 - Winter ascent from Cross Mountain Trailhead. Dropped into upper Bilk Basin and climbed south slopes to join the standard route on the southwest ridge.
